The Third Annual Big Train Celebrity Softball Classic will be held at Shirley Povich Field (10600 Westlake Dr. Bethesda, MD 20852) in Cabin John Regional Park on Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at 7PM. FanFest will kick things off beginning at 5:30PM and include great family fun, rides and games, a Redskins themed auction, giveaway items, and free food for the first 500 people! There will be plenty of opportunity to meet your favorite participants on the field immediately following the game for pictures and autographs.
Former Washington Redskin, Chris Cooley, looks to guide the media team to their first victory as he fills a dual role as manager and player for this year's media squad. In 2013, the media team fell to the athlete team 10-3. In the inaugural 2012 game, the media team lost by the score of 3-2.
The proceeds raised from the game will benefit the team's foundation to improve and build baseball fields in nearby communities to provide local children with better places to play. Proceeds will also benefit Lorenzo Alexander's ACES Foundation, The Brave Dave Open, and the Washington Redskins Alumni Association.
